Oregon (-8) by 9.08 over Oregon State - These teams have split their last 10 meetings in the Civil War. This one is for a Rose Bowl bid. The Ducks have a habit of steamrolling teams in Autzen Stadium where they beat Cal, USC and Arizona State by an average of 30 points this season. The computer is 6-5 ATS with Oregon this season, 6-4 with the Beavers.
Oregon won 37-33. The computer won SU, lost ATS.

Central Michigan (-12) by 14.41 over Ohio - The Chippewas are going for their third title in four years while Ohio is looking for its first since 1968. The Bobcats lost to Central Michigan 31-10 in the 2006 MAC championship game. CMU ranks 2nd in the MAC in total offense and total defense. Ohio ranks 9th and 5th, respectively, in those categories.

Georgia Tech (-1) by 2.38 over Clemson - Clemson is 2-3 away from home, including a 30-27 loss at Georgia Tech in week 2 of the season. The Yellow Jackets' 2nd-ranked rushing offense meets the 45th-ranked rushing defense of the Tigers.
Georgia Tech won 39-34. The computer won SU, won ATS.
BOISE STATE (-44) by 44.76 - Now, that's a big line. Boise State is 9-0 alltime vs. NMSU and has won the last two meetings 58-0 and 49-0. I generally avoid games with such whopping margins, but the computer is 7-4 ATS with NMSU and the Aggies lost by 43 at home to Nevada. New Mexico State ranks 120th in total offense while Boise State ranks 16th in defense. The Broncos are 9th in total offense while the Aggies are 99th in total defense. Boise State may hang 70 on the board this week.
Boise State won 42-7. The computer won SU, lost ATS.
California (-6) by 13.47 over WASHINGTON - It seems like the computer has undervalued Washington and the oddsmakers have overvalued the Huskies for much of the season. However, the computer is 8-2 ATS with California. Somewhere in the 9-point range sounds about right.
Washington won 42-10. The computer lost SU, lost ATS.
CONNECTICUT (-7.5) by 8.41 over Usf - USF has been awful on the road this year against the top half of the Big East, losing 41-14 at Pitt and 31-0 at Rutgers. The computer is 7-3 ATS with the Huskies, 7-2 with the Bulls.
